In reply to an earlier message, I mistyped a word and left out a word---please put it down to decreasing
capability with keyboards--the word should be spelled "NaNsemond" and the word to follow is "County."
There is a possibility that the Nansemond County Butlers trace back to Thomas or John Butler,
who were on Kent Island (now in Queen Anne's County, MD) in 1630-31 with William Claiborne. Those two
Butlers captained a pinnace or other smaller vessel from time to time.
